in newtown, connecticut. it has not even been a week. we're five days after and the son of a pastor at a local church in newtown is telling that the shooter may have been very angry with his mother. he allegedly thought she was trying to have him committed to a psychiatric facility. joshua flashman said adam lanza may have been jealous of students at sandy hook elementary, believing his mother cared more about them than she did about him. later this hour we'll speak with a teacher about some of the heroism we saw in the schools of newtown on thatae. stay tuned for that. >>> fox news alert on an effort to reach a tax-and-spending deal in washington. the president just spoke at length about negotiations and we'll get to that in a moment. but earlier we heard a stern warning for uncle sam, meaning all of us, from one of the world's leading credit rating agencies. fix the fiscal crisis or risk a downgrade. fitch warning again that it may strip the united states of its aaa credit rating if washington is unable to strike a deal to avert these big tax hikes and spending cuts th
familiar, it is the same weapon used in the shootings newtown connecticut. neither obtained their guns illegally. we're trying to figure out how to stop these massacres, one is far too many, and they seem to be a terrifyingly regular occurrence in our country. still, these horrific events shock us so deeply because they remain rare. and because the circumstances are each so specific, it is very difficult to government policy to prevent them. most of the policies we think about wouldn't have worked. the federal private sales loophole often called the gun show loophole should be closed. but there is no evidence the killers bought their guns at gun shows or through the loophole. background checks should be stricter, the guns used in western new york and connecticut were not registered in the names of the shooters. waiting periods make sense for gun buyers and particularly to prevent suicide. they would have had little effect on killers who did not purchase their guns through legitimate channels. the assault weapons rifle ban should never have been prevented to last. the ban was full of lo
that have solved newtown? it would have made that teacher the first target. you had armed people in columbine and virginia tech, and it still happened. it's the most nonsensue cal distraction. >> aim a virginia tech graduate. we had armed guards and our own police force, and it still didn't stop it. >> conventional wisdom says you shouldn't have guns in your home with young children. here we talk about tons of young children in schools. bring more guns into these institutions. >> it's crazy. >> it defies logic. >> the austin american statesman, the man credited for stopping the university of texas sniper shootings has passed away. in 1966 charles whitman killed 14 people and wounded 32 more on ut's campus before he was stopped by police officer houston mccoy. mccoy passed away yesterday at the age of 72. in an interview with the paper, mccoy said he does not want what he did that day to define him. i remember that day as vividly as if it were last week. i mean, there's something truly sad about our culture that we have these tombstones of memory in our mind so horrific. we have n
ownership in our area was important in the aftermath of the newtown shootings. >>> starbucks, our very own starbucks, is urging washington to come together. this ad running in today's "washington post" and tomorrow's "new york times" highlights starbucks' new initiative, calling on elected officials to unite on the solution to the fiscal cliff. employees in the washington area starbucks will write the message on customers' cups, urging leadership from congress. aol is also joining the effort by sharing the come together message across its network of hyperlocal websites called patch. you know, this is really a terrific thing. it's a lot of extra work for the employees in all the starbucks, but it's a terrific thing just to remind people -- not that they need reminding -- that we are represented by incompetence in washington. >> it's true. it's very howard schultz, the ceo, who has used his platform of one of the largest companies in the world to push a message or do what's good for the greater good. a couple years ago during the jobs crisis, if you remember, he did a program where you could

in the entire state of arizona. what kind of personal reaction did you have to newtown that spurred the action that you are now taking especially with having the past experience. >> i think that newtown overwhelmingly upseting to everybody that saw it. it is the most terrible thing imaginable and we can't do nothing in response. we shouldn't do something that causes more trouble than it cures . we can't do nothing. the best way and the middle way and the way to help solve the problem without creating new problems is train one person in the school and hoe's highly train that person could have a gun locked up and available for use to stop somebody who is doing bad things. >> kelly: tom horne in utah and kansas you can carry a weapon on the school if you have a permit. thank you tom horne, good day to you, sir . we'll follow that story. pushing parents . this girl got a restraining order against mom and dad because they wouldn't leave her alone at school . the epa chief resigned and the reason may be a cover up. stewart varney will weigh in and happy birthday to my good friend. we don't get to se

fundamentally changed since newtown? and what we saw last night from house republicans is yet another symptom of the real problem for the gop. they don't believe in compromise. and they've lurched too far to the right. we begin with where things stand on the fiscal cliff, msnbc political analyst and msnbc contributor jared bernstein. jentle men, president obama tonight said he had spoken with speaker boehner in addition to senate majority leader harry reed. >> i just spoke to speaker boehner and i also met with senator reed. in the next few days, i've asked leaders of congress to work towards a package that prevents a tax hike on middle class americans, protects unemployment insurance for two million americans and lays the groundwork for further work on both growth and deficit reduction. >> jared, is this actually a setback for the president in so far as the embarrassed speaker with someone at least with whom he was dealing? and now, the president really doesn't have a negotiation partner? >> i do think it's a setback from the nation because the president and speaker boehner were actually mov
think it's been a travesty in the wake of newtown, and yes, we should have a conversation about gun control and there should be parody with taking care of the mental health of americans. that discussion has been drowned out or lost or lost or never, ever happened. mr. lanza was obviously a very sick individual and needed help. i'm not sure the mental health discussion has gotten enough attention. what do you think? >> no, it hasn't. in fact, what's been happening is, of course, there's been more stereo typing stereotyping ever people with mental illness calling these people crazy. yes, he probably did have autism and/or asperger's, but people with those disorders don't generally become violent and what's interesting is that on some of the stories on the internet there are people who have made -- posted comments blaming what he did because there have been some unconfirmed reports that maybe he was take something medication. people have made comments blaming the shooting rampage on the medication. this isn't true. the problem is that people -- anybody who needs medication needs to be
for the media in covering a story like newtown. juan, as you know well know, talking about it is tough for any parent? >> it's one of the great difficulties. you want to be responsible because you are aware that fox news watch exists. you act in a way that is rude and, get it first, get that interview first. be most aggressive in covering a story. you risk a deeper sense to the public and you will be held accountable. you will notice here that the rules with regard to interviewing children, rules o pursuing families of victims really were held in check in this instance. i think there is a new set of rules with regard to media behavior. >> jon: there were a lot of mistakes made in early coverage and lots of this has to do with the social media atmosphere in which everybody's facebook pages. >> and feeling that reporters think they are in competition with twitter. they got his age wrong, identity wrong, they named his brother. whether the mother worked at the school, they got that wrong. this was not a good occasion for the press. to me it symbolized what i was talking about the church services
more attention after the mass murderer in newtown, these kind of killings are certainly not rare. in the first week following sandy hook elementary, there were 100 deadly shootings across the united states, as "the huffington post" reported and the total number of shooting deaths runs higher. every week 600 people die from gun violence according to statistics from the brady campaign. will the new concern about sandy hook draw new attention to this old and enduring problem? progress is the way we talk about this debate. here's new york mayor cory booker on sunday. >> what frustrates me about this debate is it's a false debate, this is a false debate. this is a convenient tip to try to split our country more. most agree to stop the carnage going on in cities all across america. >> booker's premise is there is a consensus on gun regulations but the nra has artificially frozen that debate. other reformers say for a real breakthrough, supporters of gun regulation need a clear political enemy to organize against. nick confessore, i'm going to you, nra has money and members and we talke

everything but the guns for the shooting in newtown, connecticut. sheri wilson tweets the nra sickens me. everybody is responsible but them. the nra needs to face the truth. no matter what the entertainment media did, the nra provided the tools for the perpetrators to execute their plans. get rid of the guns. and the nra has blood on their hands, and anybody associated with them will suffer politically. keep sharing your thoughts with us on our facebook page and twitter using the #edshow. still to come, the fiscal cliff stalemate could cost john boehner his job as house speaker. there are millions of unemployed americans out there. it could cost them their benefits and a lot of pain. that's ahead. stay with us. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." nobody likes a scrooge, and i've got the numbers to prove it. darden restaurants, ever heard of them in the umbrella corporation behind chains olive garden and red lobster, well, they did their best to avoid providing their workers with health care. now they're paying the price. here is the story. back in october, the company launched an anti-oba
position on gun safety in the wake of newtown. he said the power of the weapon, the number of bullets that hit each child, that was so, to me, just so chilling, it haunts me. it should haunt every public official. if those two bills come before the senate, i will vote for both. that's a risky, strong position by bob casey. >> he's not the only one. joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, on monday was saying this has changed his thinking. of course, these are two democrats -- >> but manchin hasn't said he will vote for these two bills. bobby casey said he will. it's different to have conversations, another to make a commitment. >> i think there will be more and more lawmakers who will follow what casey has done. i don't think he's the only one, and i think we'll start seeing some republicans -- >> it's the toughest case. let me go to ron reagan. i know pennsylvania defeated years ago joe clark, a great liberal senator, on this issue. first guy i ever voted for actually. now it's back. i know the people on the gun side of the argument, i know them closely. they will be out there v
